New Enterprise-Wide Privacy Policies
New CHI privacy policies were approved and adopted in September by the Board of Stewardship Trustees. These policies provide local leaders with the flexibility to meet their markets' unique privacy needs while maintaining CHI national standards, uniformity and continuity.
The policies also follow new privacy standards enacted March 25, 2013, by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, which implemented changes to HIPAA privacy, security, breach notification and enforcement regulations as required by the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH).
Implementation of the privacy policies will be coordinated by CHI's division privacy officers in conjunction with entity privacy officers. For more information, contact your division privacy officer (see list below) or entity privacy officer.

CHI Board Chair Writes Book on Pope
Chris Lowney, chair of CHI’s Board of Stewardship Trustees, has written a book on the leadership style of Pope Francis, analyzing the Holy Father’s approach to leadership in the context of the pontiff’s background as a Jesuit. The book, Pope Francis: Why He Leads the Way He Leads, includes many anecdotes from Jesuits who knew Father Jorge Mario Bergoglio, SJ, before he was elected the leader of the 1.2-billion-member Catholic Church in March 2013.
Lowney, an author and philanthropist who served as a managing director of J.P Morgan & Co., said he drew on his own experiences as a Jesuit seminarian in writing the book, which was published by Loyola Press and went on sale Oct. 4. Lowney said the book draws on the Pope’s own “words and deeds” to provide a “behind the scenes” portrait of the Holy Father. Lowney will donate half of all royalties from the book to four Jesuit projects that serve the poor overseas. More information is available on Lowney’s website, ChrisLowney.com.
